Citrus-Grilled Turkey Breast

I thought I'd share a super easy turkey idea with you. Since we didn't have a crowd to feed yesterday, I decided to go simple. Instead of a large turkey, I chose a turkey breast instead. I actually got one at Sam's Club - about 6 pounds, boneless, skinless, fully cooked. But I had to doctor it up just a bit! I found a recipe in Southern Living's November 2011 magazine that I modified for this bird!

The recipe in the magazine calls for a skin on, bone in breast that you actually cook on the grill. As I said above, I got the fully cooked version from Sam's (Butterball Deep Fried) and cooked it in the oven. Here is my modified version:

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsely
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. freshely ground pepper

Place turkey in small baking pan. Stir together above ingredients and rub over turkey breast. Cover loosely with foil and bake at 340 degrees for about an hour. It was super flavorful and juicy tender! It even produced enough broth to add to my jar turkey gravy to give it some extra flavor!

Somthing different - Super easy - So good!
Looking forward to leftovers today! Hope you have some good leftovers to munch on today too! If not, stop by! Now serving lunch!
